Fernando Pessoa
“The cause of my profound sense of incompatibility with others is, I believe, that most people think with their feelings, whereas I feel with my thoughts.
For the ordinary man, to feel is to live, and to think is to know how to live. For me, to think is to live, and to feel is merely food for thought.”
Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet

David Foenkinos
“J'ai consulté mon téléphone: je n'avais aucun message. C'est à cela que servent les téléphones portables, à se rendre compte que personne ne pense à vous. Avant, on pouvait toujours rêver que quelqu'un cherchait à vous joindre, à vous parler, à vous aimer. Nous vivons maintenant avec cet objet qui matérialise notre solitude.”
David Foenkinos, La tête de l'emploi

David Mitchell
“A sprinkle of last-minute despair gives a soul an agreeably earthy aftertaste.”
David Mitchell, Slade House

Fernando Pessoa
“Like every dreamer, I've always felt that my calling was to create. Since I've never been able to make an effort or carry out an intention, creation for me has always meant dreaming, wanting or desiring, and action has meant desiring of the acts I wish I could perform.”
Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet

Ernest Hemingway
“The fiesta was really started. It kept up day and night for seven days. The dancing kept up, the drinking kept up, the noise went on. The things that happened could only have happened during a fiesta. Everything became quite unreal finally and it seemed as though nothing could have any consequences. It seemed out of place to think of consequences during the fiesta. All during the fiesta you had the feeling even when it was quiet, that you had to shout any remark to make it heard. It was the same feeling about any action. It was a fiesta and it went on for seven days.”
Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises
